Woo! I have an Etsy store :)
It's definitely a work in progress...but I did it! Now I just have to figure out how to make it look great. So fun! I got the grey one printed. That's what I have for sale, but I think I want to print the last one and see how that looks too and I'm working on some new stuff too. If only I could be a full-time crafter...

Anyway, what are your favorite natural cleaning products? Any good ones? So far my favorite is Shaklee. A good friend got me hooked and they are completely healthy, natural and CHEAP! I swear I've been using the same laundry detergent for over a year! Just wondered if there are any other good ones you know of?

Hubby offering to take me out for gluten free/dariy free/ vegan ice cream...haha Sounds like a treat huh? I'm not one to pass up ANY ice cream :)

Sweet dreams <3 Ashley

Night Class

Ok so I am working on my very first Etsy product and I'm about ready to print! They are notecards/postcards. I feel silly because I've been excited about this forever and now I'm nervous because I'm afraid Kandy Grimes will be my only you mama :)

Anyway, here they are but I need feeback! I posted the original just to show you and then there is the some color option, the all color option, or the single colors which could be sold in a set. Any feedback would be amazing.

PS: It's called Night Class because it would take way longer than your average 1 hour class to finish a doodle this good :)

Tofu Stir Fry!

Dang! Earth day wears me out :) So to compensate for my not-much-creativity-required 9-5 job I've been on a frenzy of creativity lately... it's exhausting. Anyway I was up until 2am gardening (tomatoes, jalapenos, onions and cilantro) and making a long awaited earring holder. Not quite done but I'll post pictures soon!

I got to go on my first bike ride of 2010 today! It was wonderful...until it rained. But it's all good :)

And to celebrate my first vegan dinner I made tofu stir fry with brown rice:

YUM!!! This is going to be easy :)

Pick 5

I found a fun little website to get you excited about Earth Day! Go to and pick 5 small steps that you will take to go a little greener :) Here are mine:

To help protect the environment, I pledge to:
1. Help keep water clean by using biodegradable and environmentally friendly cleaning products.
2. Use human powered modes of transportation to get from place to place! Walk, jog, skip, ride a bike instead.
3. Learn about composting, try it out!
4. When purchasing goods, opt for sustainable, recycled or reused resources. Choose items in less packaging.
5. Share your commitment on social networking sites.

I've also been painting! Don't get me wrong, I would not give myself the title of artist :) I would say doodler is more accurate but I am working on some pretty cute notecard sets that will be printed on recycled paper and available in etsy SOON!

ebay & earth day

Just bought a new cord for the camera...It's been missing probably since we got married and I just got a new one at for $4.49 in about 2.5 minutes (that includes signing up for a new account). Makes me wish I hadn't waited so dang long but such is life.
Just get excited for:

a) video of Milo's first bath
b) pics of our apartment- I'm pretty proud of it!
c) some of my most recent crafts-woo!

Also HAPPY EARTH WEEK! I have decided to take a one month "Pledge to be Veg" at! I've been considering it for awhile and I decided there's no better time than Earth Day to get started. I'm posting it here for the world/(all 9 followers) to see because I tend to need lots of accountability and encouragement to follow through w/ commitments. Anyway meat makes me pretty squeamish already and after reading all the facts about how much damage it does to the earth I decided I can go at least 30 days. Hunter has been learning alot about the effects of carvnivorism (think I made that word up but it's all good)in his Environmental Biology class too... Maybe I can talk him into doing a Mr. Greeno post!

What are you doing to celebrate? Planting/hugging trees? :) Recycling?

Thanks for reading!

The rest of the fam...

So it's been a week now since Milo moved in... and obviously he is top of the priority list around here. I mean we have a blog that's so far dedicated to him alone : ) So I thought maybe I'd do a little update on the rest of the household. We're not as cute...but we don't snore as bad either. I'll call it even! So Hunter recently went back to escuela to become a middle school science teacher. I'm so excited/ proud of him! He is now the Starbucks barista in our home while he does school full time. He started in January and should be done in 2.5 years. So far he loves it and can't wait to start teaching! I am leasing apartments at The Highline on Cherry Creek, a LUUUUUXURY apartment community in southeast Denver ;) It's pretty fun and my commute is killer (30 seconds). I am also working on some crafts and considering opening an online store at so get excited for that! How is everyone else? Post us an update and let me know if you blog so I can check yours out... I feel like I've been missing out. Blogs are so great!

The Newest Greeno!

Hello friends and family! Welcome to our blog... It needs some work still but we have been talking about starting one for awhile and yesterday we found the perfect reason to! Please welcome the newest edition to our family...(drum roll please)... MILO BERNARD GREENO!! The sweetest little pug you've ever seen :) We are very proud parents! He's 4 years old, already potty trained and he will even sit...if you have food for him. He curls right up on our laps and gives us kisses already-we're in love! Check out the pics.
<3 Ashley & Hunter
